solid - don't listen to the misguided
2 May 2017 | by jburrillSee all my reviews

When i first searched this show on IMDb it was rated at 5 yet rotten tomatoes rated it 100%. Intrigued, i decided to watch it and detirmine the reasons for such a discrepancy. Low and behold the basic difference... racism. I guarantee that the people leaving bad reviews are white and while not necessarily racist (although i am sure several are) certainly misguided. The show itself is excellently cast and the acting is brilliant. The show is stylistically captivating and it manages to delve into explorations of several themes important to black culture and racism in today's society. It focuses on developing characters and themes and in my opinion is 100% better than the film it is based on. However... I did find it a little disappointing at times. The opening narration tries to be clever but comes across as sarcastic and patronizing. The style of the series as ultra hip tended to alienate me at times. Every dorm room looks like the perfect IKEA ad and the series only seems to include rich folk, which tends me to think of black rich people problems. Overall however it developed its characters well, it was engaging and explore important ideas without being preachy.
